The Birmingham Symphony Hall Organ - absolutely magical!

The Symphony Hall Organ was inaugurated on Friday 19 October 2001 during Symphony Hall’s 10th Birthday celebrations. It was designed and built by hand using traditional craftsmanship by Johannes Klais Orgelbau, a family firm from Bonn.

 

The organ has over 6,000 pipes. They stretch over 2½ miles when laid end to end and they weigh more than 30 tonnes. The Organ is almost 65 feet tall. The pipes, ranging from 32 foot to 6 inches in length, are made from a range of woods and metals including oak, fir, and pine plus soft metal alloys from tin, lead, and zinc.

 

See our article for more great photos of the Organ.

Birmingham has so many fantastic Gems - Town Hall and its amazing organ is one!

This William Hill organ was installed in 1834 and at the time was the largest organ in Europe.
